Default making spice box feet

Yesterday in the wood shop...

I am going to build a spice box, so I am starting at the bottom and working my way up! (Actually, I don't have a lot of curly maple but I do have enough for this)! So I first made a template of the shape I am looking for, then traced it out on some prepared ripped strips.
Then I take them to the miter box and 45* the front of the legs, where they meet. (Sorry, no photos of this critical step).
Next I drilled the holes, I try to stop when I feel the bit about to break thru, flip it over and drill thru from the other side, this helps prevent tear out. I wasn't always successfull. (When done right I end up with little "wheels", I throw those away.)
Next I run the front of the legs over the table saw, cutting a kerf to allow for a spline which will keep them aligned during glue up. Once you find the sweet spot for the kerf you'll want to lock the fence in place...Ask me why I felt I needed to mention this!
Lastly I headed to the band saw to cut out the shape from the blanks.

Someday soon, I will sand the band sawn section of the legs prior to glue up, then band saw the shape into the face and sand that again, then they will be ready for finish, but I will post more pictures when I get there.

Nice feet Jack. I was lazy and just used the feet molding bit from eagle america. Then I cut the other shape with my scroll saw. No talent just follow the lines.

Good work. But don't throw out the wheels - Scouts love them to make their Kub Kars. And kids love them to stack and build with.
